Grateful Dead Live at Fillmore Auditorium on 1969-12-20
This is not the complete show, and is missing Me & My Uncle, Hard To Handle, Cumberland Blues, Black Peter, and Dark Star>St. Stephen in the span between High Time and The Eleven. The missing songs are quite possibly missing from
the vault reels as well. This is the first known version of New Speedway, which has some very off-key harmonies, ----that sound as if they are almost intentional and sarcastic ????.
Subject: This may be THIS (?)
Actually, the only beef I have with that Dave's Picks release is that with the availability of so many shows online official releases have been released just because lost reels are found. I don't think this show is really all that great. It sounds OK on the release, but until the DS > SS > 11 thing it's just shrug-your-shoulders average. The full, 35-minute Lovelight really is the only reason to go there. I think this early New Speedway, with those "harmonies" from Bobby and Phil, sounds absolutely ridiculous.

Lets keep it real and remark on the music.... not the sound quality of 40+ year old reels.

At any rate, this is WONDERFUL music. Do yourself a favor and git it, right this very second.
